    Re: Want Windows 7 license+disc

    If you know anything about computers in general, and you know XP, you pretty much know Win 7. It really hasn't changed that much, and the bits that have are so annoying that even if you play with it...

    Computing magazine keep calling here at work trying to get us to have a subscription. In fact, I think we did get it for some time.

    I have no idea if this is possible, I'd never try it to be honest. Why do you want to do this?

  9. Re: Myth or reality : Linux community is harsh towards women

    Shouldn't individual women compain if they feel someone has been harsh towards them?

    Thanks to all for suggestions

    Re: Am I crazy?

    Yikes! I pay about 22p per unit for the first 650kWh in a month then 9p per unit after that (if I've read this thing correctly)

    That doesn't seem very good... maybe I need to switch provider! Oh...

    Re: Am I crazy?

    I was thinking that actually! $262.80 is about 168, which isn't too bad per year, if that's actually what it would cost, and it really wouldn't. I'd be thinking more like 250 most likely (close to...

    Am I crazy?

    I've decided to take the plunge and get loads of storage to put all of the media in our household onto.

  18. Re: I think Windows 7 is more reliable than Ubuntu

    Um, possibly not so much. If I clicked the "Oooo scan me now!" on Windows, I'd be infected to high heaven. If I clicked it on my Linux machine, I'd be fine.

    It depends what you want to do. I do a lot of network diagnostic work, I couldn't do half of it without the Terminal.

    Why does your response make me believe that you think Win7 can't get infected with viruses provided that you run IE8, with AV and as a non admin user?
